We are delighted to be offering both new and regular customers in Ireland the opportunity to buy their lingerie online in the comfort of their own homes.  After an initial consultation, measuring and discussion it’s a superb opportunity to simply place repeat orders, or browse to see what new fashions are available for you as seasons and fashion trends change.

Mastectomy Post-Operative Recovery Bras

For many, the journey starts with recovery, and we are pleased to be able to recommend a superb Irish Brand, ‘Theya’ as one of your choices. This medium support, back fastening comfort bra is wonderfully soft and comfortable, as well as being beautifully feminine. It is ideal for those who have undergone surgery or are having chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment where the skin is at its most sensitive.  The unique bamboo mix fabric has proven to healing properties. It is antibacterial, breathable and capable of drawing moisture away from the skin faster than 100% cotton. – There are no seams, tags or wires to irritate sensitive skin, scars or wounds. It is also perfect for those who suffer from skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, epidermolysis bullosa and ichthyosis.  There is the choice of front fastening or back fastening bras. Front adjustable straps allow for the reduced arm mobility, which you may experience after surgery. Front-opening allows ease of access for examining wounds.  Gently moulded cups with pockets on the inside for the insertion of your softie or breast form. These bras will support prosthesis up to the larger cup sizes. A well thought out bra that features removable modesty pads to give gentle shape where needed. Designed to look and feel like regular lingerie, you are well on the road to recovery with our most popular post-surgery bra.

Padded Bras

Padded bras give that extra definition that we sometimes need. The pads in the pocketed cups give a fullness to the bust and the breasts are enhanced. The padded bra range is often popular with women who have had a lumpectomy and do not require a medical breast prosthesis. The pads in the bra will help even out any changes you may have due to surgery.  One of our favourite brands is Nicola Jane. They have a range of beautiful bras that work well for all shapes. Fashionable bras that help to enhance are very popular with women who are in the lower sizes of size A and B bra cups. Feeling firmer and fuller will enhance your body shape, for all cup sizes and make you feel as beautiful as you are.  Giving advice on padded bras to suit your style is one of the most fun parts of my service. Call me to ask about the style that suits you best. It may be from the Nicola Jane range or maybe from Amoena or Anita ranges. Click on the link to view to our Padded Bra selection.

This pocketed bra is just perfect if you would like to mask any scarring. Available in white, this bra has been hugely popular with our customers for many years. The Dana and the Isabel are also beautiful cami bras that come in colours black or white. For a different colour ask me about the cami bras from America as colours change regularly. At present, there are colours brown, navy and a beautiful cream available.

If you have a favourite bra and you don’t want to change the style then you can avail of a bandeau top from the Anita range,  clicking here and see the product and the various colours available to you. Personally, I love the bandeau tops and wear them regularly underclothes that need that extra bit of coverage across the bust.  Have you ever bought a dress or top that fits perfectly but is too wide across the chest? This happens me regularly and before the bandeau top, I had to resort to a little bit of home stitching and at times, the dreaded safety pin. Thankfully, the bandeau top has solved this and has opened up my wardrobe a whole lot more.  It really is a must for everyone’s wardrobe!

What are your concerns? How can I help you to be happier with your breast prostheses and what is available to you here in Ireland? My experience with the prosthesis and my up to date knowledge will help you to get the right fit.
